Michelle Obama says things she could never say as First Lady on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Former First Lady, best-selling author, and person who claims she is never, ever running for public office (ever), Michelle Obama stopped by for an extra-long appearance on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! And while she was predictably charming, funny, and intelligent (look, she’s not running, and that’s final), host…

Yeah, sure, WarnerMedia might bring back FilmStruck—in like a year

Because nobody wants to get yelled at by both Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese on the same day—triggering what we can only assume would be some sort of spittle-flecked existential flashback to the golden age of ’70s boy auteurs—WarnerMedia, parent company of embattled movie streaming site FilmStruck, has relented…

Jameela Jamil catches all the best videos of Good Place behind-the-scenes silliness

The Good Place’s points system for judging the eventual worth of a human life is intentionally inscrutable and unfair—who among us hasn’t occasionally been moved to steal copper wiring from a decommissioned military base, huh?—but we’re pretty sure that surreptitiously filming your cast mates in a moment of unguarded…

Syfy hires Will Forte and Heidi Gardner to do Weekend Update, but now it's with cartoon aliens

Look, let’s be very clear: We’re always happy to see Will Forte get more work. (R.I.P. Last Man On Earth, MacGruber, and the SNL potato chip NASA guy.) And current Saturday Night Live cast member Heidi Gardner is a consistent treat. But still: There’s something a little on the nose in the news that Syfy has just hired…

Hugh Grant will also give this American TV thing a try, joins Nicole Kidman's HBO drama

We’re not sure if you’ve heard, but this television thing has become a pretty big deal. Even big movie stars who wouldn’t normally be caught dead watching a TV have signed on to TV projects recently, which has been the case for a long time now but we’re pretending its a new trend for comedic effect! Anyway, according…

Netflix announces WW II drama, which is also an experimental animated/live-action hybrid project

Netflix took another stab at expanding its considerable slate of animated offerings today, albeit in one of the weirder ways we’ve seen in recent years: Per THR, the company has picked up the four-episode miniseries The Liberator, which combines a story of World War II atrocities with a new and ambitious animation…

Against all odds, Kacey Musgraves took home one of the biggest honors at the CMAs

Those who tuned into last night’s Country Music Awards might have picked up on a few surprises, like Miranda Lambert’s rare loss to Carrie Underwood for Female Vocalist of the Year, or the unrelenting grip that Yodeling Boy has kept on his 15 minutes of fame. Another pleasant shock came with one of the biggest wins of…

Zayn Malik confirms that, yes, Taylor Swift sometimes travels in a suitcase to avoid paparazzi

Zayn Malik (*ahem*: Zayn) has been teasing his sophomore album for what feels like ages now, and a new Vogue profile of the one-time One Directioner offered no more clarity as to when it will arrive. Malik did, however, provide what sounds to be a definitive answer regarding another mystery: Does Taylor Swift travel…

Comedian turns 31, decides to release 31 videos in a single day

Every day, the internet is flooded with new videos that up-and-coming comedians have spent weeks, sometimes months working on. And, frankly, a lot of them aren’t very good. That’s what makes it all the more impressive that—in honor of his 31st birthday this year—comedian and ClickHole contributor Joe Kwaczala uploaded…

Black Mirror's social-media dystopia episode is now the feel-bad card game of the season

Social media is exhausting, so it was only a matter of time until someone brought it to game night, where learning the rules takes longer than the game itself. The good news is that we all already know how to conjure up a fake, more appealing existence for ourselves online, and that’s exactly the goal of a new board…

Coldplay's been hibernating, but will begin work on a "surprising" new album next year 

Coldplay’s never really gone. Even when they’re not recording, touring, or tabloiding, Chris Martin and company are memorably hobnobbing with celebrities, forecasting their collapse, or seeing their tunes reimagined in zeitgeisty flicks. Case in point: As an epilogue of sorts to their A Head Full Of Dreams album…

We take no pleasure in reporting that Mark Zuckerberg and Kanye West sang karaoke together

Kanye West, always one step ahead of the rest, has found an unlikely collaborator: Mark “World’s Oldest Boy” Zuckerberg. In the past, fans may have balked at his decision to work with Bon Iver or Katy Perry, but the results have been better than expected. Now, though, in a year when West has been working tirelessly to …
